New Lunar Cycle – Partial Solar Eclipse

Thursday, June 30th, 2011

New Moon – Cancer (Oak)

At 1:53:54 am PDT, July 1st, the Sun and Moon form a union, and yet, a Solar Eclipse is occurring. It is the completion of the cycle of 3 eclipses, the likes we will not see again for nearly 19 years. This eclipse will not be seen by many. As one scientist says, “Unless you are a penguin.” It will appear near Lutzlow-Holm Bay on the coast of Antarctica, near the South Atlantic and Indian Oceans. Are you ready to travel to the Antarctica? Friday the weather there is predicted to be between -22 degrees F to -33 degrees F and partly cloudy.

Since the Light of the Higher Self (Solar/Sun) is being eclipsed, it will, of course call us within to feel and understand what is occurring with our inner thoughts and emotions, and take the time to re-address any aspects of our self that want to sabotage positive outcomes. Take charge of this challenging inner voice by lifting to your Higher Mind and direct the fulfillment with a positive ray of joy and achievement.

On this Solar Eclipse day, the energy of Venus is in direct opposition with the Galactic Center. Venus is feeling the pull to enter the vibration of communication (she is in Gemini) with the Galactic Center (Source) even though the relationship may not be clear. The oscillation of Venus carries the cultivating power of the soul ready to stir the power of choice to enter into the Oneness without fear.

Fixed stars are creating subtle messages through the planets. Nearest to the Sun and Moon is Alhena which stirs the energy that calls you to fulfill a Mission. Venus is stimulated by the energy of Regulus, a fixed star that reveals Success, but one must not be revengeful or resentful or success is thwarted. And that wave of Venus to the Galactic Center is stirring Ras Alhague which calls forth the desire to heal a wound.

As we recognize the vibrations of the New Moon, we can look to the Sabian message of “A large diamond not completely carved.” The Diamond is a precious stone given a correlation to the Source of Creation. The Perfect Light. As we continue to see the gift of transformation, transmutation and transfiguration moving us through this year, noting the diamond is not fully carved honors the reality that we are truly not finished calling forth our Highest Nature–Source. As we blend with this New Moon and honor the Solar Eclipse, the Sun or our Higher Self may be partially eclipsed, simply to honor the reality that the “carving” of the New Stages of our Higher awareness is still occurring and not ready to be seen. The Facets of our Divine Self have not been cut, shaped and refined to meet this new Presence of Awareness we are cultivating at this time. However, it is in process.

May you all feel the power of the New Moon, that calls us to begin creating again. With a Solar eclipse, the power of chaos and the experience of havoc can be set in place and experienced for 6 months to a year. Or, if you use your three states of consciousness wisely, then the power of Creative Chaos can instill active manifestations for 6 months to a year. As this Solar eclipse is occurring in Oak, then the power of expressing your full potential can be exceptional, if you follow the gift of using your consciousness mindfully: understanding the flow of your conscious attitude, your subconscious mental and emotional dialogue and changing the voice of the saboteur to the voice of creative power you will see positive changes occur. If you mindfully work with your conscious mind and subconscious mind and direct your thoughts and feelings to merge with your Higher Self/Source Mind, then you will most certainly feel, experience and manifest the Highest intentions for manifesting your Full Potential in any area of your life.

Blessings to You

As we journey through our life, changes in every day, flowing with creativity, dealing with busyness, interacting even when we need silence….may everyone be blessed.  In blessings may you feel Love, Peace, and Harmony.  May this blend into the stillness of Inner Calm and release the Power of Oneness.

This video is moving around the Internate and certainly worth watching, reading and listening to the precious muscic.  http://www.flickspire.com/m/persgrowth/MayYouBeBlessed?lsid=afbfd07f4e752a022908b36b76c1dd36

What’s in the Stars Today?

Thursday, June 23rd, 2011

Summer Soltice brought the Sun into Cancer, Mercury is traveling quite quickly through this sign as well.  This allows us to focus on our home and the security it presents, especially when we create it to be the loving and nurturing environment that the vibration of Cancer calls for.

The Sun is in a Trine (very positive ray of energy) with Neptune and Chiron in Pisces.  This alls for a sacred alignment at home and a willingness to heal age old patterns that might keep us from this sacred blessing of light. 

The Moon is now traveling through Aries and has joined the vibrational activation of this Zodiac sign with Uruaus.  Both are squaring-off with the Sun, so do activate a challenge.  Can we remain aware of the action that is required to build our new world, honor our independence, yet share with each other in a loving way?  Can we release the spirit fire of I AM from within us, focus on the ascension of our mind, and wrap it around in a loving way to our family?

The Moon and Uranus are a focal point for the Sacred Geometry of a T-Square of Cardnial Signs.  Tension is called forward to have us make a “check” and reference what is happening in our world.  The Moon and Uranus not only is squaring off with the Sun, but also with Pluto in Capricorn (which is feeling the effects of the Sun opposing its vibration).  When we have this sort of tension, we are called to focus on our leadership capabilities, our desire to keep our home life and worldly life in balance.  As noted above with the Piscean activity, we are called to be mindful and hold life sacred.  The tension of the T-square may have us questioning authority, struggling with the debate of balancing home-life with career changes that are needed.  We may feel pulled to stay at home and have a bar-b-que or pledge to support our worldly development through major transformation around the globe.  Hmm…what is stirring within you?

Pluto and Neptune effet the entire world, not just our personal selves.  As been said so many times before, Pluto is calling for a world-wide change in our laws, government regulations, and our big company environments.  Neptune has been asking us to free ourself from illusion and seek the higher road of compassion, sacred attitudes, and freedom from the old spiritual knowledge in order to come to the true knowledge of Oneness.    Neptune is squring off with Mars in Gemini and therefore being asked to stake a higher clame to purify the language of spiritual believes, the ideals of spiritual beliefs and communicate the Truth of this Oneness reality.  Oneness is not a theory, It Is the Divine expression flowing through all.  As we move through this time and space of the Universe, we are all feeling the wave of energy effecting the call for changes, the soul evolution, and reversal of trends so only the Oneness can be the reflection.

I must ask…how are you feeling these fields of light rays springing up within you, exploring through your emotions, instilling insights through your mind?  So much more can be shared…share it.

Summer Solstice – June 21 at 10:30 am PDT

Monday, June 20th, 2011

The Sun is at zero degrees, zero Minutes of Cancer at 10:30 am PDT….the moment of Summer Solstice. We are at the Peak Power of the Sun. We are at the moments of Fulfillment and the honoring of all we have accomplished so far this year.

Summer Solstice is a power-house time. We can choose to use the power to creatively express our full potentials with humbleness. We can choose to dance with delight and raise the light of our Higher Self. We can choose to simply enjoy the Summer power of play, love, harmony, nurturing and yep, with that Cancer trait, cook for the neighborhood.

The Sun and Mercury in Cancer do oppose Pluto in Capricorn. We may see personal challenges with this opposition or worldly challenges (keep your mind open, feeling alert and note what happens for you). In this personal arena childhood challenges of authority may arise or pride in your home life surfaces (we, of course want the latter). We may discover that we become obsessive with our own ideas and relentlessly try to impress someone else with our profound wisdom (oooh, no, not that).

If in the world, then we might see challenges coming to America from other Countries now showing off their leadership qualities. We most certainly may call forth major change from our government, our laws and our regulations…but we have to stand up and call out that change.

The Moon rides alongside Chiron and Neptune in Pisces, creating an influx of emotions, a ride through the past, delving into old knowledge (or old wounds), and we can take the time to become the spiritual warrior and make decisions to change the old and get on with the new as Mars has just entered Gemini and is strongly squaring off with Neptune. The creative opportunities are there…but don’t get drugged by illusion.

Jupiter is in a Divine Design of a Grand Trine and a Kite allowing for the Grace of the Divine to Flow through and help our soul sour into action. Jupiter is in Taurus, connecting with Pluto in the Grand Trine and then off to the Ascendent to complete the sacred geometry. This will influence us on the West coast for a few hours, so best catch the flow of the Earth Grand Trine and anchor the blessings of the Divine as it helps us enthusiastically move through the major changes in our life as well as discover the benevolence of change. The constant and persistent desire to search for Truth at the higher level is being urged by Jupiter in Taurus. It also calls us to look generously at our worthiness, expand our earning power, live with joviality and not loose our wit when challenges occur.

With the Soaring part of the Grand Trine moving to the Kite, both Jupiter and Pluto meet up Chiron in Pisces and call for positive determination to continue clearing the ancient memory (past lives, past of this life, and aeons of false beliefs of separation). In fact, we are and will continue to connect with the most ancient of ancient memories…..Source Consciousness and the power of Oneness.

Though relationship issues continue to call us to attention, they are easing off as Saturn is now moving forward and Venus is in a positive alignment (while visiting Gemini). Open communication can occur and help ease the way. Saturn in Libra is forming another opposition with Uranus in Aries, which continues the struggle of how to make a relationship harmonious in caring and sharing while maintaining individualism and a measure of independence. Both are necessary to form a truly successful relationship.

Presently in the heavens we have two planets and one asteroid in retrograde. Pluto and Neptune, as well as Chiron are all continuing the retrograde process. Each in their own right calls for deep inner search for transformation, transmutation, release of the old, search for truth, clearing of spiritual imperfections, and forming new spiritual foundations. Chiron is teaching how to review empathic processes and balance them so the pain of another isn’t taken on.

There is much going on with this Summer Solstice chart. However, it is time to remember to uncover your true power, live with joy, and shine with happiness. be sure to check out the Summer Solstice Ritual at http://facesofwomanspirit.com/pdf/Summer%20Solstice%20-%202011.pdf. Enjoy setting the vortex of this celebration.

Full Moon – Total Lunar Eclipse

Tuesday, June 14th, 2011

The longest and darkest lunar eclipse will occur June 15th at 1:13:34 pm Pacific Daylight time. Lasting for more than 100 minutes, this has not occurred since 2000. The total eclipse will be seen in Africa and Central Asia. South American, Western Africa and Europe will be able to see the moon eclipsed as the rise and fall occurs. When the setting process of this eclipse is happening then over Eastern Asia and Australia.

A lunar eclipse creates the distance between heart and mind that is not easily captured. The moon (emotions) is eclipsed as it darts behind Earth thus creating a block of the light from the Sun (consciousness).

As the full moon occurs tomorrow, the moon will be traveling through Sagittarius while the Sun will be in Gemini. The Universal Law of Sagittarius is The Law of Adaptation, while the Universal Law of Gemini is the Law of Union. Hmmm, just put those two together and we can see when there is a block occurring that it is not easy to adapt to a union. This is a time when looking into adapting and understanding what you need to adapt to is quite important. In this way, when the “light returns,” (a little over an hour and ½), you can make the right choice to form a union or not.

During the full moon – lunar eclipse time, do take some time out to contemplate what it is you are trying to form a union with (person, job, project, place, etc.). Take time to understand who you need to adapt and form a harmonious alchemy that can help you merge well together and open to the potential to truly express the higher levels of yourself and the other. Gemini (Hawthorn Lunar time) offers the power of Choices to be at the forefront of your consciousness, while Sagittarius (Elder) offers the power of Sacred Silence wherein the Higher Mind/Voice can be heard. Take your time, there is no need to rush into any decisions at this point.

Lunar eclipses do have the energy flow that calls for us to review for at least a month. So, timing is not about rushing. Inner reflection is the power to observe.

What hints are in the Sabian symbol message? The symbol activated by the Moon is “A chubby boy on a hobbyhorse,” while the Sun is “A man trimming palms.” This wave of energy provides a creative genius to emerge and a motif of: “Victory is in the palm of your hands, therefore, finesse, fineness and flourish will be the energies released.”

Remember, the power of the eclipse calls you inward to contemplate before making any choices. This power to go inward, search for the inner voice and reach your higher alchemical moment will provide you with the finesse to achieve the victory you desire. Your creative energy will flourish and the fineness of your heart and mind will emerge with the regalness to ride a horse to victory with the joy of your child-like innocense.

The Sun, Mercury and Venus are all in the Sign of Gemini. This will bring the wave of ideas, the desire to communicate about them and the ability to be resourceful with your words. Don’t fall asleep during the eclipse…keep your mind open and ready to communicate from the wisdom you can achieve from your inner self.

The Moon is aligned with the North Moon Node (Cosmic Rhythm of the Universe and soul push). Both of these energies in Sagittarius do bring about your inner ability to be generous, to know when to take the risk from the urging of your soul because you will be aligned with the highest rhythm of intent. You may be called to reach for a higher level of your spiritual truth, expand your education or your teaching of spiritual realities. You may desire to uncover the creative writing from within you that will explain your inner knowing. Go for it…never hesitate…the Moon is in a fire sign….the desire to be active….don’t let it sleep in the eclipse cycle, but don’t rush it, explore from the region of your inner higher self.

New Moon – Solar Eclipse

Wednesday, June 1st, 2011

Another Lunar Cycle with Eclipses will occur this lunar month. We start at this New Moon with a partial Solar Eclipse.

The Moon and Sun are 11 degrees 1 minute into the sign of Gemini. The Earth is dancing in the middle of them and keeping the full expression of the Solar Light and thus conscious insentient from being revealed. Gemini is the sign of communication, early childhood development, dealing with siblings and neighbors, and finding the power of discernment so we may make right choices. It is the Law of Union expressing within us and may not be revealing everything we feel outwardly if we allow the eclipse to take over.

The Sun and Moon will get some assistance to focus and communicate well and intimately through their arching lights that reach out to Saturn in Libra in a positive and grace-filled reality. This will most certainly help in the communications necessary with our significant others, with our partners in business and the most important friendship we have (BFF). Though Saturn is in Retrograde, it nonetheless will activate our inner ability to recognize the importance of the “We” factor, not just the independent, “Me” factor.

Then, the Sun and Moon arch their lights in a challenge way to Chiron in Pisces. The agitation will call forth the inner wounds that we have carried for a long time. Bringing them to light allows us to clear them. More reevaluations of the secrets of abuses of the Church (Pisces) will continue, but greater healing will also arise. Will you take this call to turn what was abusive in your life to what is now life experiences you have learned by and gained personal healing and self-respect for being alive and able to deeply care for yourself and others?

The Sabian message of the degree the Sun and Moon activate is, “A topsy saucily asserting herself.” Fun loving, bold, assertiveness actions from those you would not expected are activated here. In a child-like manner, you might find yourself or another creating statements that are a bit abrasive, but call forth the truth in an irreverent manner. You may find yourself or another shockingly speaking out (and it may look disrespectful). Listen well if you hear someone speaking in this usual-for-them manner. See to learn a truth that you may need to hear. If it is you speaking, this may be the opportunity to come out of your shell and break free of false shyness keeping you from revealing the inner truth you do know.

Blessings of this New Moon-Partial Solar Eclipse….time to set the pattern for the month with gentle intention (eclipses can eclipse your outcome, so do be in clarity of your desires and note them, speak them and feel them boldly).
